3D model of а locomotive steam Brooks 2-6-0 Mogul type ''Dillon'' No35

About the prototype:

   The steam locomotive ''Dillon'' No35 of the Mogul type manufactured by Brooks Locomotive Works (USA) with a 2-6-0 wheel arrangement.
In 1882 Railroad Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad (DSP & PRR  purchased ten Brooks 2-6-0 Mogul locomotives and gave them numbers from №29 to №38. The locomotives with numbers 29, 32, 36, and 37 were un-named. The rest were given names that represented stations on the line. The locomotive ''Dillon'' itself changed its number from 35 to 162(C&S #22).

   The history of Mogul.

   The first North American example of Mogul type of locomotive was built for the Louisiana & Nashville Railroad in 1864.  According to one version, this type of locomotive got its name from the Mughal Empire (India). According to second version its name came from a 2-6-0 locomotive built for the Central Railroad of New Jersey in 1866 by the Taunton Locomotive Manufacturing Company that was called Mogul.
   From 1860 to 1910more than 11,000 Moguls  type locomotives were built between. They were generally used on freight trains but had enough speed to occasionally pull a light passenger train. They were very economical locomotives with 15"x18" cylinders and 38" drivers. He wheel arrangement 2-6-0 Mogul itself was designed to replace the common 4-40 American type that was used throughout the country from freight to passenger trains for most of the 19th century. The Mogul type locomotives were similar to 4-6-0  Ten-wheeler and 2-8-0 Consolidation types.The advantage of the 2-6-0 wheel arrangement lies in the addition of the free swiveling “bogie” front truck originally patented by Levi Bissell in 1857.  Compared to 4-4-0 American locomotives, Mogul had greater adhesion (traction of drive wheels to rails), and compared to 4-6-0 Ten-wheeler, it had lower cost. That’s why Mogul was sold quite well and was used everywhere, especially on short low budget lines and besides it could travel on light track due to its lightweight.
   Mogul became the universal type of locomotives for short and medium distances. Moreover, thanks to its sizes 2-6-0 Mogul was used also on logging lines and in some narrow-gauge operations. As technological advances continued the 2-6-0 was replaced with larger designs, most notably the Consolidation which was used by many railroads as standard main line power from the late 19th century through the 1920s.

The locomotive is made of metal, glass, wood.
The colors are black and blue.
